This was a great show and a very nice recording. The vibe in Lincoln Theatre that night was unbelievable. The whole place was full of emotion and positive energy. The entire crowd swayed back and forth all night as the band seemed to ride the vibes that were thick in the air. It was a very relaxing and spiritual evening and one that truly touched my soul. Thank you Sound Tribe for the blissful music and a special thanks to the taper that has made it possible to cherish music from a night that wont be forgotten.

beginning of a beautiful friendship
This was also my first live sts9 experience and it's not a show I will soon forget. I went to HCF immediately after. It was those three shows that turned me into a full-fledged sts9 maniac. I've since delved deeply into their entire body of work and listened to many, many shows. I know it might seem like I'm biased, but this particular show stands out among the others. It was simply unbelievable.
The sound was quite organic, reminiscent of their sound circa 2001. Most notably, you can hear the bongos in almost every song. I feel like the band was really ON that night. Maybe it had to do with crowd energy, maybe it had to do with the fact that everyone was also looking forward to HCF. Who knows? All I can say is that this show is a MUST HAVE for any sts9 fan's library.
I am eternally grateful to whoever posted this show. It's been a long, long wait. :)

I might be biased since this is was the first show but I really believe that this was a truly different STS9 than usual. Definately not cookie cutter like many since HCF. A must have for everyone. Thank you whoever finally put this up for grabs!
